Confirmation of transit must be sent before starting the voyage or at least 48 hours before reaching the deviation point with the following information:
A. Vessels particulars

B. Voyage details

C. Voyage Costs
Your detailed calculations of voyage costs via each route (Cape/Suez Canal/other route) and expected rebate from normal tolls.
2. SUEZ CANAL TOLLS
Full S.C. Tolls amount, without any reduction, to be submitted before transiting. The agreed rebate will be released upon receiving the following documents -
Should the vessel, for any reason, change load or discharge port from those stated in the original Bill of Lading or manifest, a revised calculation is to be presented to the S.C.A. showing the new reduction required. New documentation is to be presented accordingly.
The S.C.A. calculate 2 extra days steaming via the Cape for
bad weather. Kindly take this into consideration when making your calculations. State the
vessels correct speed and not the average speed, which is usually calculated to take into
account any bad weather over the whole voyage. This will ensure that the allowance in the
calculation for lost time due to bad weather is not made twice.
On receipt of the completed Rebate Request Form attached, we will make a proposal to the S.C.A. concerning any vessel you feel should be eligible for a rebate, and negotiate on your behalf. It normally takes two or three days to receive a clear answer, however more time may be required if the original discount offered is not acceptable and further negotiations are necessary.
